Lily Allen - Lily Allen 'tones down' performances for family

Lily Allen's husband has asked her to ''tone down'' her performances.

The 'Air Balloon' singer has agreed to omit some more risqué gestures from her stage shows as Sam Cooper doesn't think they are appropriate for their children, Ethel, two, and Marnie, 15 months, to see.

She said: ''He's told me to tone it down now I'm a mum. On my last tour, when I sang 'Not Fair', I used to act out fellatio using my microphone.

''Recently I have been rehearsing for this new tour and Sam said, 'You're not doing that thing again are you?' I said not if he didn't want me to. And he said no as he didn't think it's good for the kids.' ''

However, the 28-year-old star insists she won't censor her lyrics, even though her building firm boss husband is ''embarrassed'' by one new track, 'L8 Cmmr', which is inspired by their sex life.

She admitted: ''He was embarrassed. But I think people know me for being candid about everything.

''So I can't just suddenly get married and not talk about those things anymore, because I think my fans would be like, 'Er, why doesn't she talk about sex stuff?'

''I said sorry [to Sam] but he knew what he was getting into when he got with me.''

Lily announced she was retiring from pop music in 2009 and she admits now she never intended to go away for good but knew she needed to take some time out from her career for the sake of her relationship.

She explained in an interview with The Sun newspaper: ''It's just that my husband's got a job and he couldn't just pack up his bags and follow me around the world on tour. He wouldn't be happy doing that and I just knew I wanted to give my husband and I a chance...

''I had every intention of being a stay-at-home mum but it just didn't work for me like that.''
